That sounds good, I'd probably throw some mushrooms into the gravy. Maybe some frozen peas also.

Today I made a big batch of minestrone in my crockpot, which I'm planning on freezing in single servings. I also put together a batch of tandoori chicken that I'm freezing dump style.

I do still have some pork and chicken to get thrown into something today. Just doing a little research now to find some new recipes.

I have a question for you bulk cauliflower rice people - how DO you do it? I might just have misunderstood a previous post about it, but I'm not sure how to store it if I do manage to buy fresh cauliflower at a point when there's room in the freezer... Cheesy (I did one head with three carrots mixed in yesterday, but it wasn't a gigantic head, so that gives you about six portions worth of rice when served with only sausage stroganoff and no other extras, and I wouldn't know how to store it longer than three days... and it was the first time using the shredder bits of my kitchenaid, which was ridiculously fun)

I've only made it for the week, haven't tried to freeze it yet. I just keep it in tupperware until I need to use it, but I also have made it into cauliflower pizza bites each time, so that uses 1-2 cups of it (depending on if I'm doing a whole batch or a full batch).

  ???Cauliflower Rice? Is it the two mixed together or shredded cauliflower used to substitute for rice?

You shred the cauliflower raw and then saute it. It obviously doesn't taste like rice, but makes a nice base for things that usually need rice. Not getting the carbs from rice + another serving of veggies! I had some over chicken curry last night and it was good!

I might have to try that, I love rice and eat far to much of it if it's available.

OH!!!  This has NEVER happened to me before, I used to make jam all the time, but haven't done it in years, but this time all my fruit rose to the top and the bottom is pretty well clear.  Its settled a bit but not fully.  Will it settle more? and why did it do that??

that happened to me the first time this year too!  I used a new pectin (Pomona) which I like cause you can go way easy on the sugar.  When I researched the seperation, apparently I should have let it sit in the pot for a few minutes before putting it in the jars.  Or if you notice it right after you take your jam out of the canner you can do this complicated sounding fix-a few minutes upside down, then right side up then upside down again.  But in any case the jam is fine, just mix it up when you open it and it doesn't seperate again Smiley

This is a great thread, I'm getting lots of good ideas (cauliflower rice!!)  I try to cook in bulk but with a hubby who likes to take a hot meal for work, 1 teenager and 1 twenty year old who eats like 3 people its hard to have leftovers for an extra meal Cheesy
